The Paper Players #486

Jaydee is having a color challenge this week at The Paper Players!  The featured colors of the challenge are Seaside Spray, So Saffron and Grey Granite or a neutral of your choice.  I mixed current and retired colors by Close To My Heart to include Indian Corn Blue, Canary and Heather.

My flower and flourish are both cut from the Cricut Art Philosophy Collection.  This is by far the most versatile Cricut Collection out there.  The cartridge has been brought back in digital form and can be purchased through my affiliate link for instant access.  My flower was cut twice at 2.5" and layered together.  I slightly lifted the petals for added dimension. The flourish was cut at 3.5".

All supplies by Close To My Heart, except where noted:
Cricut Art Philosophy Collection
D1872 Sunflower Sympathy Stamp Set
1385 White Daisy Cardstock
X5982 Canary Cardstock
Heather Cardstock-Retired
